Women in Miami-Dade earn 87 cents for every dollar a man makes. One in five women in Miami-Dade lives in poverty.
The Women's Fund of Miami-Dade wants to change that.
The 25-year old nonprofit with a specific focus on improving the lives of girls and women is shifting its focus to create structural change when it comes to pay equity.
In the past, the fund provided substantial grants to a wide range of community groups. Some provided housing support, children services or assistance to domestic violence victims.
